There are a number of grants available for you to improve your home and increase your energy efficiency, and what’s the best bit about them? They’re all completely free. Take a look at the grants below and see what you’re eligible for.
The PSP Scheme – Government Solar Panels
Thanks to schemes like this, solar power in 2016 doubled and is estimated to do the same in 2017. But, what exactly is this grant?
You could start generating your own energy due to solar power and you won’t have to think about the cost of solar panels up front. As well as this, on top of your income you could earn up to £600 a year by generating your own renewable energy through the Government’s feed in tariff. Find out more.
To qualify for this grant, you need to be a homeowner, have a suitable roof and work 16 hours or more. Once you have been registered, you will have a free home survey to ensure your home is suitable and if it is, you can book an install date. Apply today.
